Hyper-efficient heat pumps are great for any home and can be used to heat and cool all year long.
Inside your home
Heat pumps are mounted to the wall and operated by remote to control temperature, fan strength, fan angle and fan oscillation. For larger homes, multiple heat pump units may be necessary.
Outside your home
An outdoor unit, called the condenser, is mounted on the exterior of the home and is connected to the indoor unit. Multiple indoor units are usually connected to one outdoor unit.
Comfort by remote
Turn the heat pump on and off, control temperature, fan strength, fan angle and fan oscillation all from a remote.

Cleaner air in your home or business
Each unit includes removable air filters that help to reduce dust and allergens within your home or business.
How it Works
1. Refrigerant, a special substance
The substance that allows a heat pump to work is refrigerant. A refrigerant is a substance or mixture, usually a fluid, that has properties allowing it to transition from a liquid to a gas and back again (or various combinations of the two). Another important property of a refrigerant is that it boils at low temperatures, such as room temperature air or colder. The refrigerant most commonly used in heat pumps is CO2.
2. A pump to circulate the refrigerant
Refrigerant starts out inside a compressor, which is also the “pump” part of the ductless heat pump, in the outdoor unit. This compressor pumps the refrigerant between two coils. Heat pumps work by energy transfer; therefore one coil is always absorbing heat while the other is releasing heat.
3. Heating the home
The system’s goal is to move heat (energy) into your home from the outside air. Valves cause pressure in the outdoor unit to increase, causing the refrigerant in the coil outside to get very cold, even colder than the surrounding air. This cold refrigerant absorbs heat from the slightly warmer outside air. The warmed refrigerant is then pumped inside. When it enters the coil in the indoor unit, a fan blows air across warm refrigerant in the coil and that warm air is blown into your home.
4. Cooling the home
The system’s goal is to remove heat (energy) from inside your home. Valves cause pressure in the indoor unit to increase, causing the refrigerant in the coil to get cold. A fan blows air across the cold refrigerant in the coil and cools your home. Warm air from inside your home is absorbed by the cool refrigerant and pumped outside to the outdoor unit where it is released into the air.
